Off-Premise Queen's Network Service

Locations that are not directly connected to a Queen's campus (Main, West or Innovation Park) are referred to as 'off-premise'.

Queen's departments that move to off-premise office space may choose to have Queen's network services provided by ITS.

The network service would allow the department to:

  • Receive support from ITS
  • Maintain an on-premise network presence, enabling access to campus-only services

Getting Started

Who Can Have It?

  • Queen's University Departments in Kingston

Are There Any Costs?

  • Regular campus rates for network services apply.
  • In addition, there will be monthly charges for connecting the off-premise location to the campus networks.
  • Please refer to our page on Service Fees for details.

How Do I Get It?

  • Inquiries and orders should be placed through the ITAdmin Rep .
